    This was a great restaurant for a date night. We had so much fun trying all of the different foods, and the waitress was one of the best we've ever had (Kim). The menu is highly customizable, and everything was obviously high quality and fresh. Most of the things we ate were super good, and my cocktails were delicious. We should have stuck to what the waitress had recommended because when we went outside of that we weren't as impressed with a few of the dishes (still good, but not as good as the others). It is very expensive to eat here because you buy many small portions that are all expensive, but it's worth it for special occasions. We would come back.

    Love the creative and authentic Japanese food at Matsuhisa! Their mini lobster tacos and cod lettuce wraps are out of this world and the udon is oishii (delicious)! Their desserts are fun as are their cocktails, and the service is very good. Sad that the shrimp wrapped in phyllo with katsu dipping sauce is no longer on the menu, but that is my only complaint. Such a treat to eat at Matsuhisa!

    The restaurant is beautiful with very tasteful decor . The service is impeccable and the food is beautifully presented. The food itself just isnt great. The sushi was mushy, the ahi in the tacos was just ok. The Sashimi was better but again- one of our dishes was drowning in truffle oil and it was the synthetic oil that is very strong in flavor and needs to be used sparingly. The dessert mochi and rice pudding were both very good.

    Wonderful dishes, creative, beautiful, and delicious. All very approachable also, and perfect. Our 14 and 11 yr olds tried so many new things and loved so much of it too. Staff were highly knowledgeable, casual, friendly, organized, and synchronized. They made their attentive work seem effortless. Decor was stylish and comfortable, not quiet, but never too loud either. We were very impressed. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

    Overall the meal was lackluster. The miso cod which is usually delicious was off and the wagyu beef was mediocre. The most disappointing dish we ordered was the king crab which had an overly sweet sauce.

    Quality of food is definitely going down. Ate last week at Nobu 57 in NYC and then here last night. Always been a huge Nobu fan but it’s on its way down. Hope they do something soon to stop the quality slide.

    Hi. I’ve visited your restaurants in Aspen and NYC many times and the experience in Denver was a bit disappointing. Edemame seemed a little under steamed, rock shrimp (creamy spicy) was a little under cooked and had a very limey taste. Soft shell crab roll seemed dry chicken skewers were way over salted, udon soup was great. Maybe the kitchen was having an off night. IDK. Probably won’t visit this location again.

    The waiter was excellent. He gave us the best suggestion and the right amount to get for 5 people, especially when something is really good so we need two or more orders! The food is second to none. My one wine who does not normally eat fish, will at Matsuhisa. Every bite is delectable. My son’s girlfriend took one bite of her toro sashimi and began crying because she couldn’t believe how delicious it was! The cocktail drinks are just as amazing in taste and presentation, as the food!

    We dined at Matsuhisa for our anniversary for the second year and we were mildly disappointed. Other than a perfunctory “happy anniversary”, there was no other acknowledgment like last year when we were greeted with a glass of champagne. Our server was personable, efficient and orchestrated a delicious chef’s choice menu based on our tastes. The food was outstanding as always, however we got three dishes arriving at the same time. It was busy and seemed a bit rushed. For the price, everything should be flawless. But the food. . . Incredible!
